exactly what the intelligence community told us, that they knew. >> jessica, this is an issue that the white house and the campaign are going to have to deal with now through november and beyond. and a lot of people were paying attention to what joe biden had to say and many people said, you know what? he didn't really score so well there. >> reporter: well, on that case, yeah, he seemed to put the blame on the intelligence community quite squarely. he did not seem uncertain of himself. so he had a clear answer. they were clearly ready for it. but this is definitely not a strong suit for the white house or the campaign. and it is something of a problem. but i point no doubt -- i point out it's not really a problem for the administration or the white house as it is for the political campaign, how the economic issues have impacted their lives. when it comes to these foreign policy debates the larger question of whether the bush -- sorry, the obama foreign policy is unraveling, as ryan said, really goes to people's perceptions of the president's leadership and his strength as a leader. th

spending us into a debt crisis. >> also, ryan waved a towel for the pittsburgh steelers. vice president joe biden weighed in in florida, a few hours ago hit on some similar themes. shannon travis joins us, live. shannon, the vice president still hammering away on those binder things? >> reporter: absolutely, it seems to be a winning issue, at least democrats think it is a winning issue. but the republicans think otherwise, mitt romney has narrowed a gap, president obama leads in a lot of polls in terms of women voters. but democrat strategists know that that is a winning block, the women voters. so they are seizing on this last comment in the debate about "binders full of women," take a listen about what happened a short while ago. >> they eliminate help for families who want to send their kids to college, like that beautiful baby over there. i don't blame her for crying. i don't blame that baby for crying. that baby -- that baby knows what is in store for him or her if romney wins. >> on tuesday, when governor romney was asked a direct question in the last debate about equal pay for wo

today, a fresh new week. what do they tell us? >> the horse race, right? this is a brand new cnn poll. there have been seven surveys since that first presidential debate. we average them all together and there you go. there's about as close can you get. 47% likely voters for the president, 47% supporting mitt romney. you look at new national polls that have come out in the last day and you see other numbers behind the numbers. mitt romney's favorable rating seems to be rising a little bit. that's very important as well. the battle for the white house is not a national battle. it's a race for the states and their electoral votes. if you look at the states polls, it's pretty tight as well in the states. >> they say they don't necessarily pay attention to all the polls. they say they do their internal polls but my spidey senses say they look at all the polls, those included. do the polls make a difference on what they're doing today for tomorrow? >> you know, maybe not make a difference but they realize so much is at stake at tomorrow's deba debate. why? because the race is so close. mit

, as promised, cnn's jim acosta is standing by for us now. this is romney's home base of boston, massachusetts. and, jim, we have talked, you know, the pressure on the president for this debate tomorrow night. what about romney? he was clearly the victor of the first debate. is he preparing for a more aggressive barack obama, one who will, you know, certainly be looking to even the score? >> reporter: i think so, brooke. you know, you heard ron portman who is mitt romney's chief sparring partner say on the sunday talk show yesterday the president will come out swinging. i think that's an indication that they are preparing for that scenario to emerge at the debate tomorrow night. you know, one other thing that has emerged out of the debate preparations, though not very much, brooke, these two candidates are competitive when it comes to just about everything including just how little they're saying to reporters about how these debate preparations are going on. but i will tell you that there is some conversation going on. i think on both campaigns, inside both campaigns as to how t

playing politics. how will this play out tonight? ellise lavine joining us from the state department. always good to talk about what did the president know, when did he know it, and the aftermath of the attack, and the security threat before the attack. does that threaten to overshadow perhaps a more important issue? >> well, michael, i think all this back and forth about specifically about what the administration kind of went out on sunday talk shows and was telling the american people very narrowly focused mitt romney on this last debate kind of does a disservice and glosses over the larger issues about the breakdown in intelligence, how did the u.s. intelligence community misread the threat, this growing islamist threat in benghazi, and perhaps they were planning some kind of attack, and also why wasn't the security enough that the u.s. consulate? if there were growing threats in the intelligence community was warning about this, why didn't the white house and state department answer some of these requests for more security, so i think by focussing very narrowly on this one point,

date using his time and, in many cases, going way over to stay on the attack. in our cnn/orc poll taken right after the debate, president obama came out on top. 46% of debate watchers say the president won while 39% claimed romney was the winner. that's within the margin of error. we have complete debate analysis, but we begin with our senior congress iional correspondent dana bash with more on the fireworks from hofstra. >> you may think a debate in front of undeclared, persuadable voters would produce polite performances. >> production is up. >> is down. >> no, it isn't. >> reporter: think again. at times this town hall looked like a schoolyard brawl. >> not true governor romney. >> how much did you cut them back? >> not true. >> i had a question and the question was how much did you cut them by? >> you want me to answer. >> how much did you cut them by. >> reporter: if memorable debates was about moments one here was on libya. >> who was it that denied enhanced security and why? >> reporter: the question conservatives were waiting for, a chance to slam the president for lack se
